Intro: High FPS Airsoft Target
If your like me you don't want to spend a whole bunch of money on airsoft BBs. That is why I made my own target with bullet catcher. This target will stop most airsoft rifle bullets so you don't have to waste money again.
Note: As all guns are different it may not work with every rifle straightaway but you can modify it to your rifle.
Step 1: Materials
1) Tin Foil
2) One Tin Foil Box.
3) One Twelve Pack Coke Box.
4) The Print out Target on the Instructable or your own Target (Not Shown)
Step 2: Tools
1) Hot Glue Gun
2) Sharp Knife
Step 3: Airsoft Proofing It
First, you need to hot glue about five sheets of one foot by one foot tin foil together. Do this as many times as you want depending on how high FPS your airsoft gun is.
Below One Hundred FPS= One Layer
One Hundred-One Fifty FPS= Two Layers
One Fifty- Two Hundred FPS= Three Layers
Two Hundred- Three Hundred= Four or Five Layers
Above Two Fifty= Seven
Higher Than That- You Decide
Note: The reason you use tin foil is because it will bend on impact absorbing some of the buullets energy and slowing it down.
Step 4: Assembly
Cut the drink box open and lay it flat, then snip off the extra stuff on the ends. Next, cut in half and cut one of those sections in half. Hot glue your Tin Foil layers to one side of the half a box and cut off the extra. Fold the other cut sections in half and hot glue to the back of the Tin Foil like shown. Glue the Aluminum foil box inside against the target (not shown here). Glue the cloth to the top of the target and stretch tight to the aluminum foil box.
Step 5: Glue the Target On
Glue the target to the front of the cardboard and your done. If your airsoft BBs go too deep into it you can always make a small hole and cut them out.
Step 6: Printable Target
Here is my target that you can print out.
